At last, after months of promising, The Last EVER Saturday Show has finally been added to the Archive. With special thanks to TIAL for taking the time to edit this.
The file has been added to the first page.
For those of you who aren't familiar with the Saturday Show I shall give you a brief description:
The Saturday show ran from Saturday 25th April 1998-Saturday 15th September 2001 and was a very different show to the Afternoon show in many ways. For a start the style of the show was very different indeed, whereas the Afternoon show was Chris with the rest of the team chipping in the Saturday show was mainly Chris & Dave having a very random chat on air with the BA & Producer appearing off mic at random points during the show. From the period I listened to (2000-2001) the Saturday Show's line up was Chris, Dave, Producer Richard (who never spoke on air but waved to the mic
) and Rachel (who later became the show producer) although there were quite a few others who had appeared on the show that had also appeared on the afternoon show (Including "Mad" Mick Meadows & Simon "Melinda" Hollis). Not only that for some strange reason there was never any Saturday Show jingles, they were just the standard Radio 1 jingles for some strange reason.
The features were also mostly unique to the Saturday Show and included:
Girls Going To Football - You had to be a fan (and not a man). Basically women would phone into the show, tell Chris & Dave which Football game they were going to see & Dave would predict (mostly unsuccessfully) the result for the game, if a team was playing Everton or Leeds the opposition to each of those teams would always be predicted to be the loosing team (so not a biased feature at all)
Hello, I'm Listening - Chris would phone up a friend of either himself, Dave, Rachel & whoever was the producer on that particular show, and the person answering the phone would have to answer "Hello, I'm Listening", half the time it didn't work but was funny to listen to at least, especially when every caller failed in saying the magic words
Who's In The Dog House - Male audience members (from what I can recall there was never a female caller on this feature) phoned up to tell Chris & Dave why they were in the dog house (mainly due to drinking the night before) and Chris & Dave would generally take the piss out of the caller
May Divorce Be With You - Very bizarre feature where newlyweds or people who were soon to be married would call up & Dave would predict how long the marriage would last.
Unfortunately I only have a handful of these on tape & the rest are only the first half but this will at least hopefully give you an idea of how different the Saturday Shows were.
Hope you ladies & gents enjoy it & just to let you know there will be more shows on their way soon.
